When you turn up at rehearsal, find your drum rug is missing, & the first song run through has a ton of bass drum notes!
The owner of our rehearsal barn is especially sensitive about damage of the slate floor. This setup worked out as bombproofGood move! I don't know how many dirty rugs I've dragged from doorways of various venues whenever I couldn't afford an old rug.
Agreed, but good luck fitting that on a festival riser!I like the new stage set up Andy. Adds an element of imperfection and humility
No Art, this was a "new material" run through rehearsal with the band (minus keys). Coincidentally however, this was the number my wife was referring to when I mentioned I was struggling with lots of doubles + triplets on the bass drum.So is this the beginning of the 30 min of practice (for next two weeks) your lovely spouse is demanding? LOL
I'd say he was well rewardedNatalie gave him a big, fat, wet kiss when we were done. I almost did the same. I wish I could remember his name, he totally deserves credit for that. Good times.
Very considerate of you Duncansuddenly up jumps this young woman from the audience, who proceeds to hang onto the stand for the rest of that number to stop it falling off. I played it as well, just at a slightly reduced volume.
Beams are great for that!In my first band ever, we rehearsed in a real barn and i would set up against a beam! your barn refernce reminded me, although not the same i needed to add myself to this story somehow!
Thanks. This song actually made the cut to our live set. We usually pull 4 or 5 numbers together roughly, & run through just a verse & chorus to see if it's going to sound good or not. This was one of those sessions.Good tune
I have also nailed bass drums down on rare occasions. No more though. I always have a good drum rug. Someone at a gig last week asked me why drummers always use rugs. I told her why.
Once, when I forgot my drum rug, I used the floor mats from the car and they worked fine.
